The sale at the University Farm greenhouse is open to the public and will run Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from April 2–18 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Organic vegetable and herb starts, annual and perennial flowers, and trees will be available for purchase. Most of the plants were grown at the University Farm greenhouses in collaboration with the Chico State Organic Vegetable Project, the Crop Science and Horticulture Club, and numerous classes offered through the College of Agriculture. Income from plant sales directly provides support for hands-on opportunities in plant science and nursery production.
